He holds workshops and courses all over Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Great Britain. In 2006, he teaches in the ethnic school 'Iat Gong' in Genoa, an institute which has gathered the major experts and performers of various traditional art disciplines from all over the world. He founds the cultural association 'Yidaki', involved in promoting the native Australian music and culture, which has reached a number of almost 100 members in Italy and abroad in less than one year.
